Atom by atom fabrication via electron beams and scanning probes (ORNL)

If you are interested in applying STEM not only to visualize matter, but also to control it, move atom, and build devices by electron beam - the registration is now open for the inaugural workshop “Atom by atom fabrication via electron beams and scanning probes”, to be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory on November 1,2, 2018.
This workshop will bring together experts in scanning probe atomic fabrication and the rapidly emerging field of atomically resolved electron beam matter manipulation, to highlight the recent advances and opportunities and serve as a much-nee

Aug 2018 - Introduction to Scientific Digital Images workshop

The Introduction to Scientific Digital Images workshop will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 8:30am to 1pm in the Kuiper Space Sciences building, room 308. The workshop provides a foundation for making good scientific and ethical decisions for working with digital image data.

Request for proposals at the Advanced Imaging Center (HHMI Janelia Research Campus) - April 2018

Dear Colleagues,
We are now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is 5:00 p.m. (US eastern time), June 15, 2018.
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially.

2018 Nikon Small World contest

Once again its that time of year for the annual Nikon Small World photomicrography competition’s call for entries and I would like to extend a personal invitation to enter your finest work in either the still image competition or the movie contest. Or both if you wish!
Over the past year we have been working to help build a more efficient system for you to enter these contests. We now offer an entry portal which, if you haven’t already signed up for, will greatly reduce the time and effort in entering your photos.
